Yesterday I turned 25. Holy Moly.
BUT that was not all I did this weekend. The weekend kicked off with a birthday dinner with some of my favorite ladies. Ever since college we have held a tradition to celebrate each girls birthday and that is just what we did.
I love taking an old tradition and sharing it with new friends! Thanks for coming friends! It was so much fun!
Saturday night, the birthday celebrations continued, but it wasn’t just for me! We also got to have our annual mother/daughter birthday celebration!! Our birthdays are 3 days apart, so we always like to party together with our family.
Eno’s was the perfect place to carb load before Sunday’s race!! Plus it’s delicious!!
This girl. First, if you have never read Never Serious Blog, you will add it to your daily read. Natalie was my first bride of 2014, and we have a had a special bond ever since. She was running the full and I was so proud & loved getting to spend my time before the race catching up!
Little did this guy know, he was my best friend our last three miles. This was at mile 13, I was determined to beat my time and finish strong!
To God be the glory! My goal was to run under 1:58 (my last time) and I did by two minutes!!
A big, big, big THANK YOU to my amazing pit crew!! I don’t know what I would’ve done without you!
This whole experience was so rewarding. I originally decided to run this race when I found out that it was scheduled on my birthday, but I have always had a special place in my heart for human trafficking. It is around us every day and we don’t even know it. I knew the training process was going to be long, but I knew it would be easier knowing I had something to work towards. I was blown away at the response when the fundraiser began and so humbled to know that many people wanted to raise awareness. I am beside myself and don’t know what to say to thank you enough.
I am already considering Cowtown and the Rock N’ Roll Half. I always forget how hooked you get when you start running!!
This weekend was the best and I loved soaking up every single moment.
Have a great week! Only 10 days until Christmas!!!
